Zero inflation threatens tripe sales in months ahead

The Tripe Marketing Board has acknowledged that some potential consumers may be delaying their first purchase of tripe as the official UK inflation rate reached 0% yesterday.

TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle said: "People might well be putting off buying tripe in the expectation that prices will be falling.  Our message is that there's never been a better time to buy tripe.  There's absolutely no need for deferred gratification where tripe is concerned.  It will taste as good today as it will next month".

Sir Norman acknowledged that a recent cut in the price of the TMB's 2015 Diary, which now retails at just £3.99, might have fed through into the inflation figures. "When I last looked, the diary was ranked at No 77 in the Amazon Parody Humour chart, which does tend to suggest it is still selling reasonably well," he said.

A proportion of income from sales of the diary is pledged to the UK MS Society, and £240 has already been donated.
